Vera Ruth Harper - 85

3/23/1930 - 8/4/2015

Macomb, Illinois

Vera R. Harper, 85 of Macomb, went to be with her Lord at 4:15 P.M., Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at Heartland Healthcare Center of Macomb.  She was born March 23, 1930 near Silver City, Iowa to Howard and Lucy (Downing) Freeman.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and three brothers, Wade, Don and Richard.
Surviving are one daughter, Shirley (Michael) Galloway of Colchester, one son, Alan (Valeria) Harper on Lenox, Iowa, one brother Herb (Martha) Freeman of Villisca, Iowa, one sister Vivian (Howard) Bailey of St. Joseph, Missouri, six grandchildren, Stacy (Aaron) Seaman, Kendall (Haley) Thrapp, Taycey (Keith) Post, James (Amy) Harper, Jesse Harper, Rivel Harper, and 15 great Grandchildren, Kira, Eli, Zander T., Zoey, Will, Nick, Gabe, Zander S., Zayley, Zephiniah, Jonah, Zara, Roman, Olivia, and Lola.
Vera grew up on a farm in Iowa as one of six children.  She got her teaching certificate at age 17 and taught in rural schools from 1947 to 1952.  She loved the Lord and was involved with her church and sang in the choir.  She was married to Dean Harper (deceased) in 1952 and lived in Lenox, Iowa, for 46 years.  After raising their two children she worked for O’Bryan Brothers in Bedford, Iowa, as a secretary for National Farmers Organization in Corning, Iowa, and as a word processor in data processing at the First National Bank in Creston, Iowa, until she retired.  She moved to Macomb, Illinois, in 1998 to be near family, where she lived out her remaining years.
Vera dearly loved visiting, singing, and playing with all of her grandchildren.  She enjoyed writing poetry to her grandchildren.  She liked to read scripture and all kinds of books.  She loved nature and flowers and had many in her yard she tended as a hobby.  She loved cats and enjoyed several of her own for many years and also enjoyed her daughter;s cat visiting the nursing home during her last year of life.  She enjoyed traveling in her earlier years and even did a tandem skydive at age 54!  She sang vocals in a country music band, called The Stragglers, for many years at nursing homes and various events before moving to Illinois, She enjoyed visiting with everyone and always had a beautiful smile to greet you.  She never complained and was always generous and caring to others.  She will be missed by all.
Celebration of Life services will be 4:00 P.M. Saturday, August 22, 2015, at the Jones Mortuary in Colchester, with Rev. Sam Kostreva.  Visitation with the family will be from 2:30 to 4:00 P.M. Saturday at the Funeral Home.  Memorials are to Argyle Bible Church / AWANA, Hospice Compassus in Galesburg, Illinois or McDonough County Humane Society.  Online Condolences may be expressed to the family at jonesmortuaryfh.com

    So sorry for your loss. I loved taking care of her. She usually would answer my question with a smart remark and then laugh at my expression. Thoughts and prayers for you and the family during this difficult time.
